Yes, was visible both in Konqueror and Filelight (yes, as expected, as they 
both use the same KPart).

Now there is just one circle, for "/boot".

But, still a problem with this, though guess one with Solid, so cc:ing them:
I actually have two partitions on my hard disk, one small partition mounted as 
"/boot" (but only one ;) ) and one provided by lvm (for encryption) using all 
the rest of the built-in hard disk, mounted as "/". The circle for the latter 
one, the "/" main one, is missing. Seems that Solid does not deliver an item 
for the partition from lvm/luks yet, could not find with solid-hardware 
(possibly will with upcoming fstab backend?).

And why do you filter out partitions mounted as root dir?
localfilelister.cpp:223   ...partition->filePath() == QLatin1String( "/" )...
